Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present the pre-2021 update of our top 50 Cincinnati Reds of all-time.
As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
There are no new additions but as always, we announce our top five immediately, but out full list can be found here.
1. Pete Rose
2. Johnny Bench
4. Joe Morgan
5. Barry Larkin
The changes made to advanced stats from Baseball Reference resulted in slight changes through the list, but most dramatically at the bottom, as two former Reds replaced two others. Jake Beckley (#49) and Jay Bruce (#50) now enter in place of Tom Browning and Bronson Arroyo.
